Portpatrick harbour community share offer storming ahead after only 5 days!

27th Jul 2016

THE PORTPATRICK HARBOUR COMMUNITY BENEFIT SOCIETY has seen an amazing pick up in its newly launched community share offer over its first weekend, as over 100 investors came forward.

Set to be the first of its kind in Scotland, a community-owned harbour, funded through community shares. It is now possible for people to become owners in the beautifully situated harbour, in the heart of Portpatrick, which has provided a safe haven for sailors for over 400 years.

Calum Currie chair of Portpatrick Community Benefit Society said “We knew there was a good strong interest out there from local people, regular visitors, sailors, maritime communities and expats keen to invest in our community share offer, but this has been a sprint start with over 100 investors coming forward on day one. We have already reached 37% of our target and are extremely heartened by this remarkable support.”
